German inventor builds humanoid-like robot with a Raspberry Pi

With Pi Wars coming up this weekend, I thought I’d share with you a post from Raspberry Pi magazine The MagPi about the GeRo, a humanoid robot that is controller by a Pi. German inventor Johannes Jaegers took inspiration from the Rapiro project but instead of an Arduino core, he used a Pi running ROS, the Robot Operating System. The robot features a metal skeleton and 3D-printed parts together with a custom circuit board to power the Pi and control the 17 individual servos from a battery. He has now documented the process of building the robot, which took him around two years, over on his website. Read the MagPi’s coverage here.
